Six of the seven remaining Presidential primaries and caucuses are tomorrow, including California, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota and South Dakota.
While the media is focused on the presidential campaign, there are a few other contested races on the ticket in these states (note: federal and gubernatorial primaries are not always the same as presidential).

On the Presidential front, the Total Count (with Superdelegates) stands at 2,360 for HRC, and 1567 for Sanders, putting Clinton just 23 delegates shy of the magic 2,383 to clinch the nomination. The race, however, is not presumed over as Sanders has announced his intentions to see it through to a contested convention in Philadelphia - just six weeks away.
